I have just lost my 7 year old rabbit. But I can’t help thinking it was my fault. A week ago I rushed her to the vet because something was wrong with her breathing, I was given medication to give to her by syringe. She just come back from a check up on Friday say she was a little better and just holding her weight. But four hours ago I was giving her her medicine and she died in my arms. I had just given all her med and was just given her a small amount of food when she started wriggling so I stopped for a minute. She then looked at me and went a little limp but then jumped and she fell foot to the floor where she stopped breathing and then died in my arms. I tried to bring her back but no!! Did I do something wrong I can’t help feel I killed her. I want her back please help me kno
W if it was me

I’m so sorry for the loss of your rabbit. No it wasn’t you.

Please don’t think this was your fault. By the sounds of it you did everything you could to help her. I wouldn’t think that her falling to the floor killed her. You say she went limp before she jumped so to me it sounds like there was something severely wrong before she lept from you.

It seems no matter how our animals die, the first thing we do is blame ourselves, it’s all part of grieving unfortunately.

Please try not to punish yourself, this really wasn’t your fault. Sounds like you were a kind and loving Mum to her.

Look after yourself and thinking of you. xx

Thank you it still so hard. I miss her so much, can’t help questioning myself. It comforting know there’s people out their that understand. She was not just a rabbit she was my baby. Always there when needed her with her own cheeky sometimes grumpy but always loving personality. But your kind words have helped. Thank you

I am so sorry for you and please know that you are not alone. I found this webpage and I'm so grateful because I need to talk to people who love rabbits. My bunny died two days ago and I am totally blaming myself as well because he did not like to be picked up and I had to take him to the vet because he wouldn't even let me give him his medicine for what we thought was a urinary tract infection. I put him in the car in his cage and he had a sort of an episode from being stressed out but then he seemed fine and the vet said he was fine and they gave him his pill but when we got home his breathing completely changed and he was dead in about 5 hours. I am so devastated I can't stop crying. I too need someone to tell me that I did not do this. He hasn't been eating and he hasn't been feeling well so is it possible that the vet misdiagnosed something? And that it was really something worse than a urinary tract infection? I keep trying to tell myself that Kirby had the best life. He was litter trained and his cage was behind our couch in the family room so he had the Run of it all the time. He was with us every time we were in that room and he was spoiled with treats and lots of love. How can I get myself to hang on to that and not think that I ended is life early?

Don’t blame yourself. I know it’s hard I went though the same thing blaming myself. But it’s not your fault I’m sure you did everything you could to save him. Most unfortunate rabbit spend there life in a cage with no love. Sound like you gave him a great life. Unfortunately rabbit can be effected by smallest things and get very unset and stop eating. Be strong I know it’s hard but keep ur head up all best. Hope it helps x
